2011 CELTIC MUSIC AWARDThe Gothard Sisters, hailing from the misty Pacific Northwest region of the United States, describe themselves as “three sisters performing high-energy Celtic song and dance.” The classic understatement, that. Amazingly multi-faceted, each girl brings her own special offering to the plate. While all three play the violin, 16-year-old Solana is also the lead singer and plays the bodhrán, strings, and djembe; 23-year-old Willow plays the bodhrán, mandolin, strings and cajón; and the eldest of the sisters at a mere 25 years, Greta plays violin, acoustic guitar, strings, cajón, piano and djembe. Willow and Greta also serve as backup singers. Oh, and let's not forget that Greta also runs the group's website (Gothard_Sisters) and Willow creates and sews all their costumes.
We are preparing to mail out to the Gothard Sisters their award plaque and we wanted to give everyone a peek at this award which is made possible by all of our members and listeners:
